There have been cases of even won lawsuits for malpractice in PCa, probably is rarer to win them, but has been done I remember reading about
one that was similar in ridiculousness. A Psa value of 200 and you never got disclosure????? Unreal! Why even get tested then? That surely is outrageous medical practicing and they should be held accountable for in some fashion. I bet the local newspaper would do wonders for their reputation. What drug(s) are envolved right now, is it only Lupron?????
Separately his psa drop to 500 after this many months is good but could even become better, how often did you get the psa tests after the drug therapy???? You are dealing with a very serious disease level, the top oncologists are where your best hope for control and management of PCa disease resides. There is a handful of reknown PCa oncologist specialists, if you can see one of them it would be in your best interests. (asap) If you need names alot of the people herein know whom we talking about
and maybe can add some significant additions to the list.
I would predict his psa level could be better handled and keep PCa perhaps under longer control with guys like Myers, Scholz....et al. They have done so in 1,000's of patients. They have some patients who's results are very good and unparalleled. You are beyond the skills of a uro-doc just to give you a heads up.
